eye careAn unhealthy lifestyle can make lines, dark circles, puffiness etc. visible around the eyes and the signs can become prominent in the long run if you don’t seek treatment at the right time.

Eye creams present the most effective treatment for the conditions mentioned above.

While a high quality eye cream can ward off numerous conditions and concerns developing around the surface of the eye, a wrong choice can lead to swelling in the tissues, allergies, sinuses and even cornea eye infection.

It is also important to note that some manufacturers rely on ingredients that haven’t passed clinical approval in at local or international level. Pharmarama International Inc. and other similar companies aid the process of clinical trial in UK and other countries. Eye creams that have been secured and sourced by such bodies are more effective and safe in application compared to those that are clinically unregulated.

To ease the decision making process, below is the list of the clinically proven eye creams for the year in progress:

1.  Shu Uemura Eye Concentrate (Youth Infusing)

This cream adopts a holistic approach towards improving the symptoms of baggy eyes, fine lines, puffiness and dark circles. The package features a small nozzle, which makes it easy to apply the concentrate under the surface of the eye without having to dub fingers inside a pot. The formula is light in nature and disappears in few minutes after the application.

While this youth infusing eye concentrate cream won’t show visible differences immediately, the puffiness, dark circles and sagging will be significantly reduced after continued use for few weeks and the results will gradually become visible.
